This summer school will focus on the effective exploitation of state-of-the-art HPC systems with a special focus on Data Analytics. The content of the course is tailored for intermediate graduate students (students with a Master’s degree and PhD. students) interested in both learning parallel programming models, and having hands-on experience using HPC systems. Starting from an introductory explanation of the available systems at CSCS, the course will progress to more applied topics such as parallel programming on accelerators, scientific libraries, and deep learning software frameworks. The following topics will be covered: GPU architectures, GPU programming, Message passing programming model (MPI), Performance optimization and scientific libraries, interactive supercomputing, Python libraries, Introduction to Machine Learning, and GPU optimized framework. The Summer School will be held mid of July 2020 at the Steger Center in Riva San Vitale, located in the Italian area of Switzerland.
The summer school is organized together with the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS).
